Video of Carter Page in July 2016 taking questions from notorious Russian troll/propogandist:



Thanks to Scott Stedman on Twitter for the heads-up on the video, which was posted contemporaneously to Page's appearance in Moscow in July 2016. If you haven't yet started following Stedman, I highly recommend that you do. He does some excellent research, especially into Trump's business/money laundering ties with Russia. Here's his link:

The Russian overdubbing is pretty heavy and as I don't speak Russian, I can't say for sure what Page is asked and how he replies, but according to Stedman, Page talks about American business fostering a closer relationship with Russia. (Perhaps someone who speaks fluent Russian can give me a better idea of the exchange)

Note that the video title describes Page as a "Donald Trump advisor." There are no pretenses as to who he was when he went to Russia and who he was acting on behalf of.

The troll/propagandist at issue is Maria Katasonova. She's far from camera shy and has long produced pieces and bits on the Kremlin line for distribution over social media. She's a known partner of Konstantin Rykov--who days after the election claimed he ran a social media campaign with Cambridge Analytica data in order to help Trump get elected--and appeared with Rykov at parties on Election Day and Inauguration Day. She also pushed heavily for the failed candidacy of Marine La Pen in France and actually met with La Pen in person twice.

She even has her own music video, titled--inventively enough--"Russian Hacker":



And if this 2015 video filmed in the context of Russia's military campaign in Eastern Ukraine is indeed authentic, well, she's a real peach:

1. And just in case you doubt she has close ties with the Kremlin itself....

....here she is with Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov himself.
